Some pictures from last friday's ride
Great photos Abraxes
My old cosmetic disaster of a GS. Sure is a workhorse though. This is right before leaving on a month long trip... and yes, I do trust her that long on the road.
Excellent picture!! That could be me on my GS except the twin headlights! Even have the same jersey.
Of course, I don't have the 21" front wheel either. That sure looks like it fits the bike well. I may have to do that some day....

Try also 18" rear wheel
Makes sense, if you're going to do one to do the other.
Didn't realise you'd gotten rid of the 1100 mate
Nice..i like the direction that you choose.
This is my first GS. Picked it up last week and I've already had a few hundred miles of fun in the current sub-zero temps :eek1
It's a late '96 model with 70k on the clocks but rides really well. Might be the start of a small collection
Insurance company bought it off me after I threw down the Newell Highway a few months ago. I hear it is on the road again with a new owner and will be going back to Ray Peake for service; good job too, even at 181,000Km it still has heaps of life left.
Quite close don't you think?
Are those custom made crash bars? Never seen anything like them on the market, for sale...
Hepco Becker, engine and tank crash bars, silver, chrome or black.
Linky to website where you can buy these bars.
Hey guys....the leovince arrived last Sat.
and made a mess fixing it up.
Ok,so here's the thing...do I need to retune the bike or dyno run or something?becoz...yes of coz...i do feel a slight significant improvement in the pickup but I do feel that I've lost some power somewhere in the mid and high range...
Your top end is probably the same. The low end was amplified because you ditched the anchor stock exhaust. If you reset the computer, it should remap to the current conditions. I forgot how though.
Did your stock exhaust have a catalytic convertor? If it did, you'll need to change the CCP settings. I'm on my phone so I can't do it, but you do a search for 1100GS CCP settings, you should find a ton of information. There's a plug/relay thing in your fuse box which is called the CCP. No idea what CCP stands for. BMW made different color CCP plugs that would connect to different pins which affect the air fuel mixture depending on different requirements.
If I recall correctly, I jumpered mine to 36 and 87a.
I go google and youtube for it!
